4 Months

I was playing Monopoly Deal with Chris on Tuesday night and just started laughing because of the funny things that Noah did that day. Having a four month old is such a sweet blessing! We do lots of smiling, giggling, and dancing around. And now for the monthly NOAH FACT SHEET:

Noah LOVES his mommy.

He is soooo close to rolling over, but can't quite get there yet.

He is a string bean... 27 inches long and 13 pounds at his last appointment.

He wore two SIX MONTH outfits this week! As sad as i was to pack away all his 3 month clothes, it is super fun to put him in new things.
The main disappointment of not having a girl was not being able to dress her up, but I have way more fun dressing up a boy than I would have anticipated!

He is doing lots of exploring with his hands. Everything is a new experience.

Noah brings his dad and I so much joy! Anyone who is on the fence about whether or not they should have kids right now should just go ahead and do it. It's too much fun to pass up. I know that we are soon entering a new phase of not just providing food and sleep and clothing for this little one, but he will need shepherding as well. I'm praying that God will give us lots of grace to shepherd this little heart well. I find myself second guessing myself and confused as to what he needs almost daily, but this causes me to run to Jesus and ask for his grace, comfort and patience.

And now what you really came here to see...

Noah is SO tall!

I love several things about this picture...

...his rosy cheeks
